  • Thank you as always. Seems we’ve missed opportunity to spray at moment

    If you feel you don't want to use an insecticide or the infestation is very bad you can prune it severely and it will recover with strong new growth. I have done this with one of mine and cut it back almost to ground level. They recover well. Maybe give it a good feed after pruning.
  • We discussed whether that was option.  Thanks all
